So today i look at my emails, haven't for a few days and i have 3 thanking me for my purchase of 5000,2000 and 500 ms points!
I was shocked to say the least, i knew about the phish scam where you reply to an email offering free points but hadn't had that they obvisouly got into my account.
So it was on mums debit card so they are trying to shut that account but they have changed my password so could take 48 hours luckily i have this account but that also had my mums debit details so my gold subscription had to be cancelled.then they sent me redeem codes to get back the remaining time 8 months left on my gold.
They say this will take 25-30 days to get a refund and the account being reinabled if possible, i think this is a bit bad especially at this time of year when people get games fro christmas,luckily i have this account but can see some very dissapointed people out there.
The thing is i have not heard much about this hacking, i mean when the ps3 got hacked it was all over the BBc news(i'm from the UK), so i thought it hadn't happened to many people.
Well i googled it and theres loads of people that have been hacked over the last few months! why hasn't this been made public?
A major stickie on all forums should be made, also will i get any kind of componsation? i mean when it comes down to it the hacker and MS are to blame for letting account details being stolen. I think this is terrible that they don't seem to think this is very important.
I will never use a card on my account again and suggest no-one else does, i wil only use pre-paid cards now, but thanks to the hacker and MS i am down £60+ for at least 25 days and 1 closed account, all over christmas i think we should be componsated for this breach.
